We drink a lot of pop (some may call it soda, soda pop, coke or whatever lol) in this house, I'm a big Dr. Pepper (recently the cherry flavor lol) and Jeff drinks a lot of Mt. Dew. The costs can add up with 2 liters being around $1.50 each and to be honest, we can probably go through at least 1 a day EACH! If you do the math, $3 for everyday of the year, that's over $1000! So why not make our own pop? Sodastream makes that possible!
I received the Genesis Starter Kit to review. The Genesis Starter Kit come with the soda maker, 60-Liter licensed carbonator & two carbonating bottles. Being the Dr. Pepper lover I am, I tried the Pete's Choice (compare to Dr. Pepper), it takes a little bit of tweaking to get it tasting right, the right carbonation, and the right amount of syrup. I got it on my 2nd try I think. The instructions said to give it 3 pumps of carbonation, and a cap full of syrup...I had to give it a little more carbonation and a little less syrup. I even took a bottle over to my dad to try...he liked it, and drank a whole bottle! This is going to save us so much money now! The syrup is only $4.99 and can make up to 12 liters. There are over 25 flavors! They also sell water flavors, called MyWater and they have 3 flavors to choose from, Berry, Lemon-Lime and Orange (or you can get the variety pack with all 3). Oh I also made some Fountain Mist (compare to Mt Dew) for Jeff...he liked it! He said he could tell it wasn't exactly Mt Dew...but close enough!
To get a new carbonation bottle when you run out, you send in your old bottle(s) and depending on how many bottles you send in and how many you want back decides the price you pay, like I have one 60-Liter bottle and I can send it in for another 60-Liter bottle for only $37.99, not bad since it makes about 60 liters of soda or water.
